Recently, 9 miles into a lone bike-trail ride I came full-speed upon a
hindrance and was working past it but was then rudely jarred into conciousness.
I was more than a little surprised to find that it was a cop yelling at me to
stop. I had weaved past two patrol cars in mid-path and was working under a yellow
crime-scene barrier ribbon, still focused on a distance down the trail. Embarrasssed as
hell I just turned around and headed home, overloaded on carbs,
bottles mostly full.
Does this type of disorder require a full-course therapy or can I re-gain a
small degree of mental health through self-therapy? Anyone else had similar

Good thing there wasn't something dangerous there. I can't recall becoming quite that oblivious, but then maybe I just don't remember it :-)

Next time roll up some "paranoia in a baggie" and either smoke it or carry it with you. You'll be very aware of the authorities. I don't really advise this - somedays it's best not to be operating machinery.

Guess your mind was really somewhere else - this is usually good - but you must've been in a far off land. Not good to be operating a bike this enlightened - odds are you're always going to get the short end of the stick.
